The Yupik are a group of indigenous people from the western, southwestern, and south-central Alaska. Traditionally, the families spent spring and summer time at fish camp, and then joined with others at village sites for the winter. Many families still harvest the traditional subsistence resources, especially salmon and seal. The travel to search for food and the resistance to cold weather of this people are represented on the YUPIK hand-tufted dyed wool.
